  1. PESHAWAR: A bomb resembling a toy killed at least six children Sunday in Speenmark village in the South Waziristan, officials said. The bomb exploded while the children were playing with it in the tribal district. "Six children aged between six to 12 years, all boys, were killed by a toy bomb and two others wounded critically," a local government official told AFP on condition of anonymity. Another local security official confirmed the incident and casualties. The origin of the bomb was unclear. Dozens of children, mostly in north-west Pakistan, have lost their lives in the past when playing with "toys" that turned out to be explosive devices. South Waziristan is also one of the seven tribal areas, where the army has for more than a decade been battling militants linked to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. Pakistan army launched an operation in June 2014 in neighbouring North Waziristan to wipe out terrorist bases in the tribal areas and end an insurgency that has cost thousands of civilian lives since 2004. As a result, security has improved.
  2. LONDON: At least six people were injured on Sunday after a car mounted a pavement outside a sports center in the northern English city of Newcastle, but the incident is not believed to be terrorism-related, police said on Sunday. Local media said hundreds of people were celebrating Eid, which marks the end of Islam's holy month of Ramadan, at the sports center and that two children were among the casualties. "On Sunday June 25, at approximately 9:14 a.m. Northumbria Police received reports that a vehicle had collided with pedestrians outside of Westgate Sports Centre, Newcastle upon Tyne," the police said in a statement. "Police enquiries are ongoing to establish exactly what happened but, at this time, it is not believed to be a terror incident." Police said a 42-year-old woman had been detained and was in custody.
  3. Chinese military police and rescue workers are seen at the site of a landslide in in Xinmo village. -AFP BEIJING: At least six people were found dead and over 100 remained missing hours after a massive landslide buried a mountain village in southwest China on Saturday as rescuers frantically scoured through rocks for survivors. A couple and a baby were rescued and taken to hospital after 62 homes in Xinmo village were swallowed by boulders when the side of a mountain collapsed, according to the Maoxian, or Mao county, government. The government said on its Weibo social media account that six bodies were recovered while 112 people remained missing. State media had earlier revised the number of missing people down from 141 to over 120. The early morning landslide, which officials believe was triggered by heavy rains, blocked a two-kilometre (one-mile) stretch of river and 1.6 kilometre of road, according to state media. Rescuers and local residents used ropes to move a boulder while dozens of others, aided by sniffer dogs, searched the rubble for survivors, according to videos posted online by the Maoxian government and state broadcaster CCTV. Bulldozers and heavy diggers were also deployed to remove boulders, while villagers and soldiers lifted rocks with their bare hands. Rescuers brought spotlights to continue the search after sunset. Nearly 2,000 police, soldiers and civilians were taking part in the rescue. Medics were seen treating a woman on a road. No sign of the village could be seen in aerial footage, which showed a grim and grey rock-strewn landscape covering the area where it once existed by a river. A fourth survivor had been spotted earlier in the day but officials did not say whether he was finally pulled out of the rubble hours later. "It´s the biggest landslide in this area since the Wenchuan earthquake," said Wang Yongbo, one of the officials in charge of rescue efforts, referring to the disaster that killed 87,000 people in 2008 in a town in Sichuan. More rain forecast Local police captain Chen Tiebo said the heavy rains that hit the region in recent days had triggered the landslide. "There are several tonnes of rock" over the village, he told CCTV. "It´s a seismic area here. There´s not a lot of vegetation," Chen said. Trees can help absorb excess rain and prevent landslides. Tao Jian, director of the local weather service, told CCTV that the 2008 earthquake had "weakened the mountain" and that "a weak rain can provoke a geological catastrophe". President Xi Jinping called for rescuers to "spare no effort" in their search for survivors and prevent more disasters, state media said. China´s national weather observatory said more heavy rain was expected in parts of Sichuan and other southwestern provinces. Past disasters Landslides are a frequent danger in rural and mountainous parts of China, particularly at times of heavy rains. At least 12 people were killed in January when a landslide crushed a hotel in central Hubei province. In October landslides battered eastern China in the wake of torrential rains brought by Typhoon Megi, causing widespread damage and killing at least eight. More than 70 were killed by a landslide in the southern commercial hub of Shenzhen in December 2015, caused by the improper storage of waste. One of the deadliest landslides took place in 1991, when 216 were killed in southwestern Yunnan province.
  4. WASHINGTON: Six top health advisors have resigned from Donald Trump´s advisory council on HIV/AIDS, complaining that the US president doesn´t really care about combatting the illness. In a letter published Friday in Newsweek, Scott Schoettes said the Trump administration has "no strategy" on AIDS and that he and his five colleagues will be more effective advocating for change from the outside. Schoettes, counsel and HIV project director at Lambda Legal, resigned Tuesday from the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS, along with Lucy Bradley-Springer, Gina Brown, Ulysses Burley III, Michelle Ogle and Grissel Granados. The council can have up to 25 members. "The Trump administration has no strategy to address the on-going HIV/AIDS epidemic, seeks zero input from experts to formulate HIV policy, and -- most concerning -- pushes legislation that will harm people living with HIV and halt or reverse important gains made in the fight against this disease," Schoettes wrote. "If we do not ensure that US leadership at the executive and legislative levels are informed by experience and expertise, real people will be hurt and some will even die," he said. "Because we do not believe the Trump administration is listening to -- or cares -- about the communities we serve as members of PACHA, we have decided it is time to step down." PACHA, which was created in 1995, includes public health officials, researchers, health care providers, faith leavers, HIV advocates and people living with HIV. Its helps inform the National HIV/AIDS Strategy, which was last revised in 2015. Schoettes noted that Trump failed to appoint a head of the White House Office of National AIDS Policy, a senior advisory position, and took down the Office of National AIDS Policy website the very day he took office -- on January 20 -- and has yet to replace it. He also stressed that changes Trump and his fellow Republicans in Congress are seeking to the sweeping health care reform initiated by former president Barack Obama would be "extremely harmful" to people living with HIV or AIDS. Schoettes cited data showing that only 40 percent of people living with HIV in the United States can access life-saving medications.
  5. After the stunning final match win against India - Pakistan secured its direct place in ICC World Cup 2019 as its One Day International ranking has jumped to number six. Team Pakistan entered in the Champions Trophy being the lowest ranking team of the eight competing sides ? however, its fascinating victories against South Africa, Sri Lanka, England and India alleviated its position to number six. A young Pakistan team has stunned the world and created history after thrashing an in-form and star-studded Indian side by 180 runs in the Champions Trophy finale at The Oval. After scoring a mammoth 338 runs, Pakistan shot India down at 158 runs to secure one of the greatest victories in the history of cricket. Meanwhile, Mohammad Amir tore apart the famed Indian top three, shaking India to the core as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan headed back to the pavilion.
  6. MUMBAI: An Indian court on Friday found six men guilty of involvement in a series of blasts in the city of Mumbai in 1993 that killed 257 people and wounded 800, the latest in scores of convictions related to India´s most deadly bombings. The special anti-terrorism court said the six had transported weapons and planted bombs, which targeted landmark buildings in the financial hub, including the main stock exchange. A seventh man was acquitted on a lack of evidence. All of the seven men were arrested between 2003 to 2010.Arguments to decide on the sentences will begin on Monday, said Deepak Salvi, special prosecutor for the Central Bureau of Investigation, India´s federal police, who said he would seek the maximum penalties available for each of the convicted men. The maximum penalty is death. "It´s a victory for the CBI, Mumbai police and the people of India who trust in justice," Salvi told Reuters. Lawyers for the men were not immediately reachable. Legal proceedings against those accused of being involved in the bombings have resulted in more than 100 convictions, most of which are still winding their way through the legal system because of appeals and commutations of sentences. One suspect in the case, Yakub Memon, was hanged in 2015.
  7. BAHAWALPUR: Death toll in the bus accident that took place Thursday night near Chani Goth here has risen to six, according to rescue officials. In addition, 25 people were injured in the motor crash, the rescue officers mentioned. A bus travelling from Lahore to Karachi met an accident when it tumbled over from a bridge at Chani Goth, leaving half a dozen people dead and at least 25 injured.

  10. Bollywood isn't just about artfully directed films. Celebrity fashion is a big part of movies now. And we are absolutely obsessed with it. Let’s just look at the things we are currently stalking (not in order of priority, obviously): 1) A celebrity’s weird sense of style 2) All things BTS 3) Sneakers 3) Celebs and their cappuccino shots and 4) Dogs, lots of ‘em. But jokes aside, what we are trying to highlight is that there’s a lot of effort that goes into making a celebrity look good on the red carpet. Don’t believe us? One look at the Instagrams of top celebrity stylists will tell you about their coffee-induced haze. But the million dollar question is: Will you (and I) ever get a chance to dress up like our fave celebs? Is it even possible? The answer, however, lies in Dhruv Monga’s attempt to dress-up like a real life, Varun Dhawan. That too in denim. Below are his key takeaways: Shirt- Jack & Jones, Tank Top- Dhruv Monga “Don’t look back in anger. JK. That’s not an actual takeaway. That’s the name of my favorite song!” “The key structure for the look is simple. It’s an unbuttoned denim shirt, paired with a tank top, a pair of distressed jeans and funky-AF sneakers. Because in Bollywood, if you’ve worked for it, you might as well show it. The body I mean…” “I refuse to wear a basic tank top because it’ll make me—for the lack of a better word—common. And, no one wants to be common, trust me!” Shirt- Jack & Jones, Tank Top- Dhruv Monga, Jeans- Zara 4. “I haven’t reached Varun level body/biceps yet. So whatever I have now will have to do. Actually, on second thought, for someone who’s as tall as me, my pecs are just fine!” 5. “I had no urge of dancing with Kriti Sanon to Manma Emotion Jaage. I have no urge of dancing with Kriti at all. I love me some Disha Patani!” 6. “I can only wear this look for 3 hours max or I’ll combust and go to design hell. Not a joke, just an observation!” ‘30 days of Denim’ is a social experiment of sorts, or in layman terms, the ultimate Denim guide, on how to inject your personality, and inherent sense of self into, say, a basic-ass pair of jeans. Bonus: It features 30 really cool men, all with very distinct style sensibilities, but primarily, each having an innate love for all things denim.

  11. WANA: Six kidnapped Pakistani workers for a Polish oil and gas company have been freed, a local official said on Monday, more than six months after they were abducted. The six workers for oil and gas survey or Geofizyka Krakow were recovered on Sunday night and have been moved to the main city in Pakistan?s northwestern South Waziristan region, according to Muhammad Tahir, the city?s political administrator. The Polish Embassy referred all queries to the foreign ministry in Warsaw. The Pakistani workers were snatched from their vehicles in November, 80 kilometres from the northwestern city of Dera Ismail Khan. Geofizyka Krakow, which has been in liquidation since August, could not immediately be reached for comment on Monday. In May, its parent company, PGNiG, said every effort was being made to find the workers.
  12. MOSCOW: A violent storm swept through Moscow Monday, leaving six people dead and dozens injured as freak winds toppled hundreds of trees, officials said. "Due to hurricane winds in the northeast, south-west and east of Moscow trees fell on pedestrians. Five people were killed," the city´s investigative committee said in a statement. "Also a bus stop was damaged due to a strong gust of wind. An elderly man...was killed on the spot," it said, adding that an investigation was under way into the deaths. Moscow mayor Sergei Sobyanin said "over 40 people had to seek medical help" after the storm, expressing condolences for those who died. "Several hundred trees were felled," he wrote on his official Twitter. "We are taking necessary measures to deal with the consequences." Moscow emergencies services dispatched units to remove the felled trees but had no information about any serious material damages, a spokesman told AFP by phone. The weather caused delays in Moscow´s airports and the express train to Vnukovo airport had to halt service as workers removed a tree from the line.

  14. A Minnesota judge has ruled that six siblings of pop music superstar Prince are the heirs to his vast estate, more than a year after his death from an accidental drug overdose, according to court documents released on Friday. Prince's sister, Tyka Nelson, and his half-siblings, Omarr Baker, Alfred Jackson, Sharon Nelson, Norrine Nelson and John Nelson, were designated as the musician's heirs by Carver County District Judge Kevin Eide. Prince died at age 57 of an accidental, self-administered overdose of the powerful painkiller fentanyl in April 2016 at his Paisley Park Studios compound in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen. The creator of hits such as "Purple Rain" and "When Doves Cry," Prince did not leave behind a will, sparking a protracted legal battle over his estate, with dozens of people filing claims of heirship. The exact value of Prince's estate is unclear but believed to be in the hundreds of millions of dollars. He left behind some $25 million in properties alone, according to an inventory compiled after his death by an asset management company. Prince's assets will not be distributed to his heirs without a formal court order. If appellate court rules that rejected claimants could have a claim, Eide said he would consider them, court documents said. Last month, a U.S. judge blocked a planned release of new Prince music. The six-song EP "Deliverance" had been scheduled to be released on the first anniversary of Prince's death. It would have marked the first in a series of planned posthumous releases of material by Prince from the huge vault of discarded or unfinished material he reportedly left behind. Paisley Park now operates as a museum, with displays of Prince's flamboyant concert wardrobe as well as his instruments and motorcycle collection.
  15. The modern-era of cricket has witnessed a handful of cricketers staking their claim as most fearsome and hard-hitting batsmen ever. Whether it's Chris Gayle, Virat Kohli or AB de Villiers, limited-overs cricket has lately become a platform for cricketers to showcase some clean hitting of the ball. But, none of those cricketers can match the power hitting of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The former Indian captain might be a little unorthodox in his approach, but when he strikes the ball, more often than not, it goes the distance. A specimen of his batting prowess was once again at full display on Tuesday when he terrorised the Mumbai Indians (MI) to almost single-handedly power Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) into the IPL final. #MSDhoni is in the house! #MIvRPS #IPL2017 https://t.co/oYnUYai2z6 #VIVOIPL via @ipl — Cricket Geek (@CricGeeks) May 16, 2017 The right-hander slammed a breathtaking 26-ball 40 which was decorated with five massive sixes. Such is his might with the willow that when Dhoni hits the ball, he doesn't even look at the ball while it’s in the air. The opposition bowler is only restricted to a helpless sight. And, the fielders don't generally bother to make an attempt to catch it. The moral of the story: Dhoni's hits are 'OK Tested' and certified sixes. So Rohit Sharma getting excited on the boundary line in the 19th over of the Pune innings got everyone wondering, "What was he really trying to do". © Twitter/IPL Pune were looking for a final push when Dhoni decided to tear into Mitchell McClenaghan in the penultimate over of their innings. Manoj Tiwary had already struck a four and a six when Dhoni launched one over deep midwicket on the fourth delivery. After making a comeback with a dot ball, McClenaghan was looking to finish the over on a high when Dhoni stood tall and smoked him over long-on for another maximum. For a moment, it did look like Dhoni's innings might be coming to an end. But, those who know his striking abilities would have been sure of the eventual result. When #MSDhoni strikes the ball, it remains hit. Rohit learnt it the hard way #MIvRPS #IPL2017 https://t.co/wb5F1llzkD #VIVOIPL via @ipl — Cricket Geek (@CricGeeks) May 17, 2017 The ball had gained so much height that it got the Mumbai captain, who was fielding at long-on, excited. But, as he prepared himself for a valiant effort, the ball went over him by some distance - despite his animated leap of faith in the air. © Twitter/IPL The result, as expected, was a six - the third of the over, while Rohit found himself licking his lips after landing on a few water bottles and the ice-box in the Pune dugout. Thankfully, Rohit didn't injure himself, saving Indian fans the horror ahead of the coveted ICC Champions Trophy in June. © Twitter/IPL But, Dhoni wasn't done yet. His blitzkrieg continued in the final over of the innings where he slammed death-overs specialist Jasprit Bumrah for two towering sixes to ensure Pune notched up a competitive total of 162 runs which eventually made all the difference in the end. With Pune this season, the Jharkhand cricketer has now entered the IPL final for the seventh time in 10 seasons. And, by the looks of it, Dhoni could very well land his third IPL title (2010, 2014 with Chennai) and his first with Pune.
  16. GHOTKI: A trailer collided with a rickshaw near in Ghotki district in northern Sindh on Tuesday, killing at least six passengers and injuring eight others. According to rescue sources, the passengers were returning to Sadiqabad after the Urs of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan. Earlier today, at least five of a family were killed when a truck and van collided near Qasba Mona in Chakwal early morning on Tuesday. Eleven people including six children were injured in the accident were shifted to the hospital, rescue sources told Geo News. On Monday, at least four schoolchildren and a driver were killed and eight children critically injured when a speeding oil tanker crushed a school van in Multan.
  17. The ICC Champions Trophy 2017 will be a landmark tournament for all-rounder Shoaib Malik, who becomes the first ever Pakistani cricketer to feature in his sixth successive tournament. Only eight other players have featured in six Champions Trophy tournaments: Ricky Ponting (Australia), Rahul Dravid (India), Daniel Vettori (New Zealand), Mark Boucher and Jacques Kallis (both South Africa) and Sanath Jayasuriya, Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara (all Sri Lanka). Shoaib made his tournament debut in the Colombo event in 2002, going on to play in the 2004 and 2013 events in the United Kingdom, 2006 event in India and 2009 tournament in South Africa. The 35-year-old has scored 326 runs and taken 10 wickets in 15 ICC Champions Trophy appearances. With 247 ODIs to his name, he will be aiming to become the 42nd player overall to play in 250 or more ODIs when he walks out to play the third match against Sri Lanka in Cardiff on 12 June. “I am happy to be part of the Pakistan squad in a quality event like the ICC Champions Trophy,” Shoaib said, in a press release by the ICC. “If I look at the company of players who have played in the six events to date, I feel humbled and honoured as these gentlemen are some of the finest our sport has ever seen. Shoaib Malik in action during Pakistan vs India match in 2009 ICC Champions Trophy/Getty Images “The Champions Trophy is one of the most important events for Pakistan in recent times for a number of reasons. As the ODI squad, we need to re-establish ourselves as one of the top ODI sides by putting up strong performances against all teams. This will help our global ranking and help us to qualify for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Strong performances are also important to boost the morale of our team and millions of well-wishers back home and around the world,” he said. “In this perspective, I think I personally have a bigger role to play in the tournament than just performing with the bat and the ball. I need to help the younger guys to overcome their nerves and showcase the talent they possess to themselves and the world that'll be watching.” Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed is one of the nine Pakistan players who will be making their ICC Champions Trophy debuts.

  18. LOS ANGELES: The former business manager of Alanis Morissette was sentenced to six years in prison after he admitted stealing millions from the rock singer by misleading her about her finances. Jonathan Schwartz, who had worked for prominent Los Angeles-area firm GSO Business Management, was also ordered to pay $8,657,268 in restitution, according to a federal judge´s sentence announced late Wednesday. Morissette, attending the sentencing hearing, said Schwartz acted in a "long, drawn-out, calculated and sinister manner," and shattered her dreams of being able to focus on her family and causes. Schwartz admitted that he stole $4.8 million from Morissette between 2010 and 2014, classifying the withdrawals as the singer´s personal expenses and telling her she was in solid financial shape. When confronted, Schwartz acknowledged that he lied by telling Morissette that he was investing her money in the nascent marijuana business. Schwartz, a certified public accountant, also admitted stealing $1 million from another client in the guise of home renovations as well as $737,500 from another customer whose signature he forged on receipts. Deirdre Fike, the assistant director of the FBI´s Los Angeles field office, said Schwartz "used his clients´ funds as a personal ATM machine" and vowed that the bureau would keep investigating such crimes. "Individuals have a right to feel secure when placing their trust, as well as large sums of money, with financial managers," she said in a statement. Morissette won fame at an early age. When her 1995 album "Jagged Little Pill" won the Grammy for Album of the Year, she was 21 and the youngest artist ever to win the prestigious award, a record later broken by Taylor Swift. The Canadian-born singer is the voice behind energetic rock anthems that became some of the best-known hits of the 1990s including "You Oughta Know," "Hand in My Pocket" and "You Learn." Morissette´s case had echoes of the saga of another Canadian artist in Los Angeles -- the late Leonard Cohen, who a decade earlier discovered that a former manager had stolen $5 million from him, obliging the singer and poet to emerge from semi-retirement.
  19. BRIDGETOWN: Yasir Shah’s stranglehold of the West Indies continued on the fourth day of the second Test at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Wednesday as the leg-spinner snared six for 90 to re-open the prospect of a first-ever Test match victory at the venue for Pakistan going into the final day. Despite a patient, disciplined Test best of 90 from Shai Hope and a succession of half-century partnerships that raised expectations of the home side batting their way to safety, West Indies slipped from the relative comfort of 235 for four to be 264 for nine at stumps. They go into the final day on Thursday ahead by 183 runs with the last pair at the crease. On a deteriorating pitch, Pakistan’s final target may still be a challenging one as they seek the historic win which would also give them a first-ever Test series triumph in the Caribbean. “Man of the Match” in the seven-wicket win the first Test in Jamaica, Shah was again the key performer when it mattered most for Pakistan. Hope appeared to have blunted the threat successfully through more than five hours of watchful batsmanship. However within sight of a maiden Test hundred, he drove Shah to cover where Azhar Ali held the catch that triggered the late slide. Having broken an 80-run fifth-wicket partnership with Vishaul Singh, Pakistan were celebrating again off the very next delivery as Singh was on his way back to the pavilion, bowled off the inside edge by seamer Mohammad Abbas for 32. Three wickets fell for one run when Younis Khan held his fifth catch of the match, a brilliant reflex effort at slip to remove West Indies captain Jason Holder off Shah. In his farewell series like captain Misbah ul Haq, Younis is now the only fielder to have taken 50 catches after the age of 35 in Test cricket. “It’s about staying fit and staying sharp and expectant in the field,” the 39-year-old explained. “This pitch is pretty much like what we play on at home and in the UAE (United Arab Emirates), so if we play properly and concentrate we should be able to get whatever the target is on the last day.” In rampant mood after the late success, Shah then disposed of Shane Dowrich and Alzarri Joseph in quick succession just before the close to leave Devendra Bishoo and last man Shannon Gabriel to carry the fight for the home side into the last day. With more and more questions being asked about his continued presence in the regional side given a paltry average of 15.40 and a topscore of 41 prior to this innings, Hope went a long way in responding to the critics in a situation where the West Indies were always likely to capitulate. He came to the crease in the morning after Pakistan struck an early blow when the West Indies resumed at 40 for one, Mohammad Amir bowling Shimron Hetmyer before the left-hander could add to his overnight score of 22. Kraigg Brathwaite continued to bat resolutely in partnership with Hope, the pair putting on 56 for the third wicket despite the varying challenges posed by the tourists’ combination of pace and wrist-spin. It was Shah, the more experienced of the specialist slow bowlers, who provided the breakthrough when he removed the obdurate Brathwaite for 43. Fresh from a century in the first innings, Roston Chase proved an able partner to Hope for the rest of the morning and then deep into the afternoon session, their fourth-wicket stand producing 58 invaluable runs when Chase was deceived by a flighted Shah delivery to be caught-and-bowled for 23.
  20. BRIDGETOWN: Yasir Shah’s stranglehold of the West Indies continued on the fourth day of the second Test at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Wednesday as the leg-spinner snared six for 90 to re-open the prospect of a first-ever Test match victory at the venue for Pakistan going into the final day. Despite a patient, disciplined Test best of 90 from Shai Hope and a succession of half-century partnerships that raised expectations of the home side batting their way to safety, West Indies slipped from the relative comfort of 235 for four to be 264 for nine at stumps. They go into the final day on Thursday ahead by 183 runs with the last pair at the crease. On a deteriorating pitch, Pakistan’s final target may still be a challenging one as they seek the historic win which would also give them a first-ever Test series triumph in the Caribbean. “Man of the Match” in the seven-wicket win the first Test in Jamaica, Shah was again the key performer when it mattered most for Pakistan.

  21. KARACHI: At least six suspects, including two foreign nationals, involved in different crimes were apprehended in Karachi late Thursday, police said. The arrests were made during raids in various areas late this night, police said. Three suspects were rounded up in a raid conducted in Keamari's Jackson area. They were said to be involved in drug peddling. Officials also claimed to have recovered intoxicants from them. Another suspect was held from Pakistan Bazar area in Orangi Town. The suspect was reportedly involved in robberies. Meanwhile, the law enforcers conducted another raid in Sharifabad area and arrested two foreign nationals. The suspects had been staying in the country illegally, officials said. They added that a case has also been registered against the duo.
  22. Real Madrid again made light of the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo as they crushed Deportivo la Coruna 6-2 to maintain the upper hand in the La Liga title race on Wednesday. Madrid and Barcelona are locked on 78 points at the top of the table, but Real have a game in hand over their title rivals. Barca remain top thanks to their better head-to-head record as Lionel Messi struck twice to relegate Osasuna in a 7-1 thrashing. Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane made nine changes in all from the side that lost 3-2 to Barca on Sunday to reignite the title race. Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and the injured Gareth Bale were left out the Madrid squad for a third straight away league game, but again their absence wasn't missed. "It is the hardest job for a coach. When they play like they did today and then maybe they won't play in the next game," said Zidane. "We know I have a phenomenal group of players and all of them are ready for the challenge between now and the end of the season." Alvaro Morata smashed home at the near post to give the visitors the perfect start after less than a minute. James Rodriguez then added a second from Lucas Vazquez's cross as Madrid threatened to run riot inside the first 20 minutes. However, the European champions have now kept just one clean sheet in their last 15 games and their defence was breached once more when Florin Andone turned home Gael Kakuta's mishit shot 10 minutes before half-time. Vazquez, though, restored Real's two-goal lead before half-time and Zidane's men could even have reached double figures in a dominant second period. Morata unselfishly teed up Rodriguez for his second of the night before Isco sealed a stunning individual display by smashing home 13 minutes from time. Joselu got another goal back for Deportivo with a fine looping header, but fittingly Real had the final say when Casemiro's piledriver slipped under Deportivo 'keeper Przemys?aw Tyton. Messi homage At the Camp Nou, Barca fans paid homage to Messi's brilliance against Real in scoring the winner and his 500th goal for the club with the last kick of the game in Sunday's El Clasico. The five-time World Player of the Year responded by opening the scoring as he pounced on an error in the Osasuna defence to stroll through on goal and lift the ball over the advancing Salvatore Sirigu. Andre Gomes has been the scapegoat for many of Barca's most disappointing defeats this season. But the Portuguese had arguably his best night in a Barca shirt as he drilled home Ivan Rakitic's cross to make it 2-0 on the half hour. "We had the chance to use a lot of players that have played fewer minutes," said Barca boss Luis Enrique. "It is a game that boosts those individuals, the team as a whole and gives us hope for the end of the season." Roberto Torres's free-kick briefly brought Osasuna back into the game three minutes into the second half. Barca, though, simply went through the gears with a four-goal burst in 10 devastating minutes. Firstly, Gomes slotted home his second of the night after Gerard Pique's initial effort came back off the post. Messi then curled in his 49th goal in 47 appearances this season from the edge of the area. The Argentine instantly made way for 19-year-old Carles Alena to keep him fresh for Saturday's Catalan derby at Espanyol. Paco Alcacer also grabbed a double for Barca's fifth and seventh. And in between times Javier Mascherano bagged his first goal in 319 Barca appearances by blasting home from the penalty spot. Osasuna's relegation was confirmed after Leganes beat Las Palmas 3-0 to move six points clear of the drop zone. And Real Sociedad boosted their chances of qualifying for the Europa League with a 3-2 win at Valencia.
  23. KINGSTON: Pakistan won by seven wickets in the first test against West Indies on Tuesday. The three-match series is now 1-0 in the favour of tourists. Yasir Shah completed a six-wicket haul to spearhead a second innings rout of the West Indies and put Pakistan on the verge of a comfortable victory on the final day of the first Test on Tuesday. With this win Pakistan has also completed its Silver Jubilee of Test wins under Misbah ul Haq's captaincy. Trailing on the first innings by 121 runs and resuming at the overnight position of 93 for four, the home side were dismissed for 152 after less than two hours´ play at Sabina Park in Jamaica. Needing just 32 runs for a 1-0 lead in the three-Test series, the tourists lost both openers and will resume after lunch at 13 for two with Babar Azam and Younis Khan at the crease. Having taken the first four wickets late on the fourth evening, leg-spinner Shah was kept waiting for more success at the start of play on the fifth day as the visitors´ faster bowlers continued the demolition job by taking the next four wickets. However, Shah, who bowled unchanged from one end throughout the morning´s play, was not to be denied another five-wicket innings haul. He wrapped up the innings with the wickets of tailenders Alzarri Joseph and Shannon Gabriel in the space of four deliveries in his 22nd over, finishing with the excellent innings figures of six for 63 and a match haul of eight for 154. Shah was expected to pose an immediate threat at the start of Tuesday´s play but it was Mohammad Amir who initiated the final tumble of wickets, inducing an error of judgement from Vishaul Singh, who was bowled offering no shot to the left-arm fast bowler. Mohammad Abbas replaced Amir and almost immediately struck two critical blows. Nightwatchman Devendra Bishoo, who had defied the Pakistanis for over an hour, flashed at a wide delivery to be well caught by Younis Khan at second slip for 18. Shane Dowrich was then trapped palpably LBW two balls later and at 129 for seven the die was effectively cast. Jason Holder joined Roston Chase and the pair hinted briefly at a repetition of the resistance they showed a year earlier when the West Indies batted through the last day at the same venue to ensure a draw in the second Test of a four-match series against India. History was not to be repeated, though, as Wahab Riaz replaced Abbas and accounted for the West Indies captain via a catch behind as Holder essayed a loose drive, providing the opportunity for Shah to finish off the innings in the next over. Any expectation of Pakistan knocking off the required runs swiftly were ended by the dismissals of Ahmed Shehzad and Azhar Ali in successive overs. Shehzad edged a catch to wicketkeeper Dowrich off Gabriel while Ali played on to Joseph, leaving the task to be completed by the veteran Younis and heir apparent Azam on the resumption.
  24. China reaffirmed its claim over Tawang by announcing ‘standardised’ official names for six places in Arunachal Pradesh, a few days after Dalai Lama’s visit to the city. “China’s Ministry of Civil Affairs announced on April 14 that it had standardised in Chinese characters, Tibetan and Roman alphabet the names of six places in ‘South Tibet’, which India calls ‘Arunachal Pradesh’, in accordance with the regulations of the central government,” state-run Global Times reported. The Indian government has yet to make any official statement regarding this renaming matter, but as soon as this news spread on the internet, Indians didn’t waste any time to show their anger. According to people, this is a huge violation of India’s sovereignty and Arunachal Pradesh is an integral part of India, with China having no right over it whatsoever. © Twitter The thing that irked the people the most was the fact that China referred to Arunachal Pradesh as ‘South Tibet.’ Many people said that if China can stoop to this level, India too should rename Tibet. People on Twitter called out for the BJP and PM Narendra Modi to not take this lightly and send an important message to the neighbouring country. #China took a serious step by naming areas of Arunachal Pradesh. India should respond by naming areas in Aksai Chin. #ArunanchalPradesh — Reforming India (@ReformingIndia0) April 19, 2017 India - We have Arunachal Pradesh, we have Dalai lama, we have the free tibet government and Tibetan people China - We have the names — Gaurab Mukherjee (@gaurab_27) April 19, 2017 @globaltimesnews @freetibetorg stop Day-dreaming Dragon, Arunachal Pradesh is part of India, n will remain forever. — sudheer kumar (@sudheergodara) April 19, 2017 #ArunachalPradesh We renamed china as greater Arunachal Pradesh..

  25. One of India's most popular and highly cherished cricketers, Mahendra Singh Dhoni left his detractors red-faced after hitting back to form during the scintillating encounter between Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the ongoing tenth edition Indian Premier League (IPL).The former Indian captain, who has been struggling to score runs in the shortest format, played a handy knock of 28 runs and stitched up a crucial partnership of 58 runs for the third wicket with Steve Smith (27). In the 25 deliveries he faced, the Jharkhand cricketer slammed three fours and a six. While Dhoni's return to form was highly-awaited by the fans, his monstrous six that came during the innings was the one that left everyone in shock and awe. POWER! When MS Dhoni was in the house https://t.co/DxEQdQ2HAu — Sunny Dhanani (@SunnyDhanani7) April 16, 2017 Dhoni of the yesteryears came to fore in the 14th over when Yuzvendra Chahal's length ball was sent into the orbit by our Captain Cool. Sensing an opportunity to free his arms, the right-hander skipped down the track and smashed the ball on the bleeping roof of the M Chinnaswamy stadium.The ball had travelled so high that, by the looks of it, Bangalore would've surely needed a 100-foot tall long-on fielder to do anything about that. Smitten by Dhoni's humongous six, while the fans wasted no time in expressing their pleasure on the social media, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner, too, couldn't hold his emotions back and came up with a brilliant tweet. I just heard a bang on my window!! Was that the ball @msdhoni just hit from Bangalore wow boooooom. — David Warner (@davidwarner31) April 16, 2017 Astonished by Dhoni's batting prowess, Warner said: "I just heard a bang on my window!! Was that the ball".While Dhoni's short, yet valuable, innings was a sign of the former Pune captain getting back to explosive best, his mighty hit was undoubtedly a much-needed slap on the face of his detractors.
